Niger, Niamey, Niamey - UNICEF

UNICEF works in some of the world's toughest places, to reach the world's most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.   Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.   And we never give up.   For every child, passion.   Niger is a landlocked Sahelian country of 21.5 million people, most of whom live in rural areas (84%). The population is young, with 58% of Nigeriens being under 18, and nearly half of the population is poor, despite reductions in the poverty rate over the past decade. The country, which ranked last on the 2017 Human Development Index, sees its development constrained by several factors: high population growth, climatic conditions that hinder rural development, vulnerability due to the absence of economic diversification, gender equality issues, low levels of literacy and education, and the size and landlocked nature of the country, which obstruct the provision of essential goods and services to the population. In addition, Niger is confronted to recurrent crises, including malnutrition, epidemics and population displacement.   UNICEF supports the Government of Niger's efforts to improve the situation of women and children, focusing on the following seven sectors through its 2019-2021 programme of cooperation: health, nutrition, water, hygiene and sanitation, education, child protection, and social inclusion, and adolescent and social norms. The vision for the new country programme is to support the Government towards ensuring that all children, especially the most vulnerable, enjoy their rights; adolescents and youth are empowered; communities and systems are strengthened and resilient; and humanitarian assistance and development address the structural causes of fragility and vulnerability.   How can you make a difference?   Join our dynamic team in UNICEF Niger to work with and lead the Supply and Logistics Unit.
